  • GOOOOOAAAALLLLL!!!!! Southampton score first!!! Elyounoussi drifts across the edge of the box before passing wide to Perraud, who crosses back into the box. The unmarked Adams meets it with a superb glancing header, and the ball flies across Neto and into the far corner!!! That was some goal, and it's put the Saints 1-0 up at the Vitality!

  • The hosts break and Christie releases Tavernier down the right. He races onto the ball put is dragged back by Perraud, who is booked by the referee for the foul!

  • Mepham needlessly slides in on Maitland-Niles as the ball goes over the sideline, and there's a scuffle that follows, with the pair locked head-to-head until they are separated! Mepham is eventually booked for the challenge by the referee.

  • Maitland-Niles' reaction was arguably justified, but a tad extreme, and so he also picks up a yellow card for his involvement.

  • Aribo comes off for Southampton, and it's a defensively-minded change by Ralph Hassenhuttl, as the Nigeria forward is replaced by Brazilian centre-back Lyanco.

  • Walker-Peters has pulled up on the far touchline and won't be risked further, so Stuart Armstrong will come on for the Saints.

  • Billing has arguably been Bournemouth's biggest danger in attack, but the towering Dane comes off now, for an equally towering Welshman in Kieffer Moore.

  • Stuart Armstrong tries to carry on playing despite a throw-in being signalled, and proceeds to scoop the ball into the stands behind the goal. He's yellow carded, understandably given the blatant time-wasting.
